James Franco in Attitude April 2013: "The Gay Rumors Don't Bother Me"

For years he's faced rumors regarding his sexuality, and now James Franco is clearing the air in the April 2013 issue of Attitude magazine.

After posing for the Terry Richardson-shot front page, the "Oz The Great and Powerful" hunk chatted about his thoughts on the speculations and its effect on his career.

"One of the things that’s very much part of my public image is the question of my sexuality. It’s not something that bothers me in the slightest. It hasn’t gone away and I get asked about it from all sides. It’s partly my doing and partly not my doing," the 34-year-old actor explains.

In regards to the rumors impact on his career, James admits, "I was supposed to do a commercial with this company and they pulled out because they weren’t happy, they didn’t like the subject matter of my films at Sundance. If I’m at the threshold of doing a project and the question comes up, ‘Will this be harmful to your career?' I never want that to be the deciding factor."

Exactly r2. He annoys the crap out of me.

by Anonymousreply 303/18/2013

I LOVE him.

by Anonymousreply 403/18/2013

What R3 said. Even worse, I think he's using our community for his own personal gain.

by Anonymousreply 503/18/2013

I love him.

by Anonymousreply 603/18/2013

Why would anyone think he's gay or even bisexual? If he were either, I truly believe he'd be out. He must be straight.

by Anonymousreply 703/18/2013

I think he may be retarded.

by Anonymousreply 803/18/2013

It's not "rumors" James, it's empirical evidence.

by Anonymousreply 1003/18/2013

He never got me as a druggie.

by Anonymousreply 1103/18/2013

So he hasn't exactly denied being gay, just said that the rumors don't bother him.

by Anonymousreply 1203/18/2013

[r2] just like a million other actors ~ what planet are you on?

by Anonymousreply 1303/18/2013

Stop enabling the asshole, r13--Franco is a hundred times worse than even "most actors."

by Anonymousreply 1403/19/2013

Selena Gomez basically just said on Letterman that James Franco creeped her out during the filming of that upcoming spring break movie; he stayed in character all throughout the shoot.

by Anonymousreply 1503/19/2013

James Franco + Jake Gillwhatever = Hollywood big fat attention whores.

by Anonymousreply 1603/19/2013

Selena Gomez is a nobody, R15.

by Anonymousreply 1703/19/2013

Yes, R17, and James Franco is a famously self-adoring twit.

by Anonymousreply 1803/19/2013

Franco is an Oscar nominee. Let us know when Gomez is.

by Anonymousreply 1903/19/2013

He's so tiresome.

by Anonymousreply 2003/19/2013

I'll keep you informed, R19.

Our society is a fucking mess. So what if an actor is gay or bi.

That's all the more reason why I do applaud those who come out. But shit won't really change until an A-lister comes out, and at the moment, I don't know if any are brave enough to do it.

by Anonymousreply 2203/19/2013

He's a good actor who works, makes money and also does the films HE wants to do. It makes most of you jealous.

by Anonymousreply 2303/19/2013

James Franco still refuses to actually have the balls to be honest about himself. I don't know about his sexuality but I do know he denied smoking weed during the "Pineapple Express" press tours. Which is obvious bullshit, I know many people who have smoked with him.

by Anonymousreply 2503/19/2013

I imagine the stupid studio made him say that. Although I wonder what Seth Rogan said.

by Anonymousreply 2603/19/2013

It's obvious that he wants to be referred to as a sex symbol.

by Anonymousreply 2703/20/2013

If he lies about the weed smoking, then he's lying about other stuff. Please don't mistake this for desperately wanting him to be gay because I can't stand him.

by Anonymousreply 2803/22/2013

Another thing I can't stand is gay media and how they suck up to celebrities with gay rumors going out of their way to hype their alleged hetero credentials.

by Anonymousreply 2903/22/2013

That Spring Break movie got surprisingly good reviews, may be better than Oz.

I went right off Franco when he bullied poor Jesse Eisenberg at the Oscars roundtable.

by Anonymousreply 3003/22/2013

It's annoying to see him constantly focusing on gays and then pretending to be surprised that there would be gay rumors. It's like someone waving a rainbow flag and then claiming they didn't know what the flag represents.

by Anonymousreply 3103/22/2013

[quote]I know many people who have smoked with him.

How would you know people who have smoked weed with James Franco?

by Anonymousreply 3203/22/2013

What? Franco bullied Jessie? Well fuck him!

by Anonymousreply 3303/22/2013

The man's gay and his coy hints of it right in front of Hollywood and his frau fans is pretty ballsy.

by Anonymousreply 3403/22/2013

If he's gay and hiding it, how can a closet case be thought of as ballsy in any way?

by Anonymousreply 3503/22/2013

If he's gay why doesn't he just say so, R34?

by Anonymousreply 3603/22/2013

Maybe I overstated and read too much into it R33 watching again, but he was creepy as hell here anyway and can't believe he was so douchey with a camera on him.

It's a pretty cool group they assembled though, surprised the too cool for school Gosling was there.

This is-he-or-isn't-he flirtation would have seemed edgy and transgressive a few decades ago, even in the 90s, but now it just serves to reinforce the closet, and like everything this guy does is a piece of lame, half-baked performance art.

by Anonymousreply 3803/22/2013

Everyone knows he's gay. But this "am I or aren't I" crap is just so 1) He can appear edgy (even though it really isn't) and 2) So he can still stay in the closet and keep his dumb naive female fans happy.

by Anonymousreply 3903/22/2013

Isn't Franco 35 now? I'd say it's time he comes out.
